Today, I returned to the Alameda County Fairgrounds to attend the Pleasanton Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show. This was my first time back since selling my cards at Artist Alley this summer.
As always, I was on a mission to check out some new items for the holiday season and to find inspiration for my new projects.
Of course, I had to check out Linda Cullen’s creative bottle caps, which I have been doing at nearly every show I’ve been to. You may not believe it, but it’s been a year since I first met her at last year’s Harvest Festival.
When I attended that show, I thought to myself, is there any booth that’ll stand out for me? After seeing it for the first time, I was instantly inspired to create projects with sports, television, and other things along those lines.
The highlight of it all was giving her one of my new Kevin’s Cards calendars after giving some away to a few people, including Melanie Johnston’s mom from Artist Alley. I figured she would like to have one since giving her some of my cards at Fremont Festival of the Arts.
As I’ve said before, art shows like these are great places to sell my cards and display my art and this one in particular would be one of my top choices to do it! No matter which show I attend, there will always be something to inspire me for the next project!
